Poll: 24 hours left, what will Mario kart 8 score? (113 votes)

AAAAE 17%

There are 24 hours left to the Mario kart 8 review embargo getting lifted- it's our last chance to guess what this game will score here on Gamespot. Starting tomorrow, there will only be damage control, one way or the other.

So, what do you all think this game will score on here? Me, as much as I know this won't happen realistically speaking, I will stand by my earlier prediction of 10/10 AAAAE.

Come at me, bros.

A mario kart game getting a high score while having the same core formula issues? But at the same time, the only near notable release for the wii u, and in comparison to other games released this year would be high scoring...

Also this is GS and tom is reviewing.

So using retinal regurgitation analyst. I will conclude that the score will be 7.

What time does the review go live tomorrow?

#55 Edited by iambatman7986 (489 posts) -

AAA

#56 Posted by AznbkdX (3226 posts) -

My previous vote was 8/10 before all the stuff was shown, but I'll go and change my vote to 9/10.

#57 Posted by LadyBlue (3929 posts) -

9 looks very likely.

#58 Edited by good_sk8er7 (4322 posts) -

Wow we're gonna have reviews 2 weeks early???? That's cool, doesn't really matter to me what the reviews are. I've had it pre ordered for awhile.

#59 Edited by NathanDrakeSwag (5127 posts) -

Probably a 9. It looks surprisingly good.

#60 Edited by no-scope-AK47 (2806 posts) -

Don't matter unless the console sales improve most likely we will never play it.

#61 Posted by cdragon_88 (1209 posts) -

So does this game have multiplayer online where I can just jump on and race others?

#62 Posted by getyeryayasout (7604 posts) -

Feels like a 9.

#63 Posted by Heil68 (45224 posts) -

It looks great so 9.0. I know it's bad, but what sold me on it was the free game with purchase. I probably wouldn't of bought it if it wasn't included.

Yes. It also has leagues and tournaments that you can set up.

#65 Edited by Meinhard1 (6775 posts) -

Question: this games excellent content aside, does anyone think the press will go easy on it because many editors want Nintendo, as a major underdog, to succeed? Just a thought.

I'm saying a 9 here, while there will undoubtedly be 10s and 8s. If you look at the previews there are lots of positives this time around and some will surely call this the "Galaxy" of Kart. So some 10s (AAAA) seem inevitable. Conversely there will be reviewers who praise the game but focus on similarities to past Karts, hence the 8s (AA.)

Overall this game seems to have less flaws and more pros than MK Wii / 7, so high marks seem likely -- I'll be surprised to see many scores in the 7-7.9 (A) range.

8/10

I've never been wrong before

From what I understand, Tom McShea is reviewing this.

Oh shit. He is very critical of Nintendo. It's gonna flop if he is reviewing it.

While critical of some games, Tom loved A Link Between Worlds and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze.

Fun fact: Carolyn really liked Tropical Freeze, too.

Score prediction: 7

personal hype: okay/10

#69 Posted by STEAMSBL0WSSAX (80 posts) -

lol id much rather have a more tradtitional mario kart like mario kart 64.

#70 Posted by princeofshapeir (14277 posts) -

I was hyping an 8, but after seeing more previews and trailers I'm going to say a 9. It legitimately looks like the best Mario Kart in the series.

#71 Posted by kingjazziephiz (2433 posts) -

9/10

9.5/10

Best racing game of last 5 years

But the Wii U is so underpowered and games look like PS2 era :(

Did MKDD and SSBM save the Gamecube? It depends on peoples defenition of save. Wii U will probably never sell past 30 million in it's life time. I could be wrong but what ever. They will never profit big time with the Wii U. 3DS on the other hand....

#73 Edited by lamprey263 (24232 posts) -

I hope it gets 9 or 10, though I don't see it scoring less than an 8 which is still respectable.

Same here iirc. I'm kind of getting risky here and going for higher than what I normally give games. More than half the time I spam 8/10 only because probability wise GS has been handing that out a lot lately.

#75 Posted by Joedgabe (5127 posts) -

It HAS to score an 8. It would be the only appropriate thing for the title.

#76 Posted by Heirren (17375 posts) -

who cares what it scores. Gamespots reviews have been going downhill for a long time. I'm beginning to believe that the bulk of this forum just jumps on a hype train that negates any games Nintendo puts out. It is so easy to see that wiiu is worth it by now. People need to take the time to play some of the great games on wiiu.

#77 Posted by santoron (7775 posts) -

8. Says so right in the title. Mario Kart 8, not Mario Kart 9 or Mario Kart AAA...

#78 Posted by Shinobishyguy (22489 posts) -

Heres a fun drinking game;

Take a shot every time a review says something along the lines of "yeah this game is good and all but it won't save the wii u"

#79 Edited by yokofox33 (29912 posts) -

I'll go with AAA. Just seems like an amazing game from all the trailers and previews I've seen.

#82 Posted by Shinobishyguy (22489 posts) -

In all honesty I dont see GS lowballing it like expand dong freezy pop. I predict an 8 minimum based on how positive their previews have been for it.

#83 Posted by Wild_man_22 (619 posts) -

8

#84 Posted by wiifan001 (18425 posts) -

AA unless it gets McShea'd

#85 Posted by Pffrbt (6565 posts) -

Does anyone actually care what Gamespot gives it? Their reviews are almost always terrible.

#86 Posted by trugs26 (5589 posts) -

Most likely 8, a chance for 9.

Their previews for DK: TF were positive and look what happened there.

#88 Posted by Sollet (7395 posts) -

I can see this getting an 8.0 - It's GS remember :P

Grew really tired of it with the wii version but 8 looks very impressive!

The review is here and it's... a flop.

Really expected AAA.

If it's by Tom, an 8 is a given.

Called it

#94 Posted by inb4uall (5806 posts) -

I couldn't give a shit what gamespot scores it. I learned long ago that their reviewers are incompetent.

#96 Edited by Obviously_Right (5101 posts) -

lol flop

#97 Edited by KungfuKitten (21142 posts) -

On GS or in reality?
On GS 8.
With Tom it would be a 7.
Honest user score more like a 9. They added quite a bit of cool stuff and fixes to an already great working franchise, and it looks and sounds better than ever.

#99 Edited by sailor232 (4835 posts) -

Fair score, not being able to invite friends is a massive let down, two whole points for that alone would be about right. Hopefully Nintendo will patch that, but it is more proof that Nintendo stay in their own bubble.

#100 Posted by bbkkristian (14957 posts) -

I'm not shocked it got an 8, it's the only score gamespot gives.
